North Carolina Disabled Child SSDI & SSI Lawyers
Dedicated Representation for Your Child & Your Family
Children younger than 18 who have a disability may be eligible for Supplemental Security Income (SSI). Adults who have been disabled since childhood may also qualify for Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) benefits in addition to SSI benefits.
At Lanier Law Group, we understand that raising a child with a disability can present a financial challenge for your family. Depending on your child’s disability, however, he or she may qualify for benefits under the SSI program. Our dedicated North Carolina disabled child Social Security disability lawyers work with clients throughout the state; we can answer your questions and review your situation to determine the best course of action for you.
Determining SSI Eligibility for Disabled Children
If you are seeking SSI on behalf of a disabled child in North Carolina or need help understanding how Social Security disability works, our attorneys can offer you comprehensive support. Our lawyers can also assist you in filing an appeal if your claim for SSI benefits for your disabled child has been denied.
If you are seeking Supplemental Security Income for your disabled child, he or she must meet the following requirements established by the Social Security Administration (SSA):
- Your child must have a physical or mental condition, or a combination of conditions, which result in “marked and severe functional limitations.” This means that the condition must seriously limit your child’s activities.
- Your child’s condition must be disabling, or be expected to be disabling, for at least 12 months, or must be expected to result in death.
- If your child is blind, he or she will need to meet the same requirements for SSI as an adult who is blind.
Before receiving SSI, you must provide information to the SSA, including medical records and documentation that your child’s disability affects his or her daily activities. Our legal team is sympathetic to your situation, and we are prepared to work diligently to help you obtain the benefits you need to take care of your child. Our North Carolina SSD lawyers are dedicated to fighting to help disabled clients receive their benefits, whether through filing initial claims or appealing denied claims.
